Playlist erot­ica

Jamaica Gleaner - - SEX & RELATIONSHIPS - Krysta An­der­son Gleaner Writer­der­son@glean­

TURN OFF the lights, a can­dle flame flick­ers brightly and the mood is set just right. You know what time it is. Now, we have a playlist for just about ev­ery oc­ca­sion – for driv­ing in the car, work­ing out at the gym, even at work. So why not have one for the bed­room, and start our very own pri­vate party for two?

We asked a few of our read­ers what are some of the songs we can find on their erotic playlist. Their choices var­ied from old school to con­tem­po­rary jams and cross­ing gen­res. So wel­come to Playlist Erot­ica, where erotic mu­sic meets erotic play. Sit back, re­lax, and en­joy.

Floetry’s Say Yes, John Leg­end’s Tonight and Made to Love, as well as Musiq Soulchild’s So Beau­ti­ful and When I’m With You. They lit­er­ally set the mood. If you lis­ten to the lyrics, they say it all and the melodies are just so soft and sooth­ing. Dy­na­mite! R.H., fe­male, 30

My playlist in­cludes R Kelly’s Bump and Grind, Tyrese’s Signs of Love­mak­ing, any of Joe’s songs: I Wanna Know, More and More. They’re soft and slow with de­lib­er­ate beats, just car­nal and raw. I’ll switch it up Per­son­ally by Kal­ado, to ig­nite a dif­fer­ent rhyth­mic vibe. Tonight and All of Me by John Leg­end, Miguel’s All I Want is You,J Hol­i­day’s Bed and The Weeknd’s Earned It. They are all sexy songs and they put my mind and body in a very sex­ual play­ful place be­tween a strip­per and a porn­star. K.W., fe­male, 33

I ac­tu­ally have a spe­cial mix called ‘Booty Call’, which is a 25-minute­long mix I play some­times dur­ing sex. I’m go­ing to share one of the playlists with you. The list is di­vided into three sec­tions: warm-up, ex­e­cu­tion, and home run. Warm-up: Bruno Mars – It will Rain, Jamie Foxx – Fall For Your Type and Shai – If I Ever Fall In Love. Ex­e­cu­tion: Dreezy – Body ft. Jeremiah, and Weeknd – Ac­quainted. While for the home run: Dexta Daps – Morn­ing Love, Mavado – Tie Yuh, Al­ka­line – How It Feel and Al­ka­line – On Fleek. These songs evoke a strong sen­sual feel­ing. The lyrics, the melody, and the rhythm of these songs set the mood and play on one’s emo­tion. They some­times bring across the mes­sage for you – in the case of ask­ing for ‘it’. Let the mu­sic do the talk­ing. These songs also rid ten­sion by re­lax­ing your part­ner’s body. L.H., male, 32

The playlist I use for my bed­room is de­pen­dent on the mood. I’m a love­mak­ing type of girl so of­ten­times I’m pulling for our old-school-love playlist with songs like Cruisin’ by Smokey Robin­son and Penny Lover by Lionel Richie. For nights, when we’re com­ing from our night out at the club now, we pull for our dancehall playlist. That song al­ways seems to put me in just the right mood to get down and dirty un­der the sheets. K.D., fe­male, 24

Ciara’s Body Party is def­i­nitely on my playlist for my girl­friend, while me, it’s Keith Sweat’s No­body. I put No­body on the playlist be­cause I love it. She doesn’t like it, but if I’m in a spe­cific mood, putting her in the mood be­comes eas­ier and that song helps me to do just that so we com­pro­mise. For her, Body Party is all about the rhyth­mic dy­nam­ics of the song that make the bed feel like a dance floor which as a dancer (she is one) can work won­ders.

Well I love a few of Brian McKnight songs. Boyz II Men’s I’ll Make Love To You, Marvin Gaye’s Sex­ual Heal­ing and Let’s Get It On, Miss­ing You Like Crazy by Natalie Cole, El­ton John’s Can You Feel the Love Tonight and To Love You More by Ce­line Dion. That’s just a few. I love to play ’80s into ’90s souls when go­ing in, if I re­ally like the per­son and then you take it to an­other level in terms of love­mak­ing when the power of the mu­sic hits you. R.A., male 29

Tyrese’s Zo­diac Signs, Trey Songz’s Slow Mo­tion and Bey­oncé’s Dance for You. I love those songs be­cause they re­ally put me in the right mood, espe­cially if I’m around my sig­nif­i­cant other, so when I put the emo­tions from the songs, plus the emo­tions I al­ready have into the love­mak­ing, it’s even deeper. S.C., fe­male 27

Sex With You and Let’s Get Naked by Mar­cus Hous­ton and I’ll Make Love to You by Boyz II Men. I don’t know why, I just like them and my girl­friend likes them, too.

Get on Your Knees by Nicki Mi­naj is on my playlist be­cause it is just re­ally naughty. Then there is For­eign by Trey Songz, be­cause I love it when he makes me speak in an­other lan­guage. I also like Mir­ror by Ne-Yo; it is sul­try and sexy. Nah (Remix) by Ty Dolla Sign fea­tur­ing the Weeknd is so dirty, but once the week­end part comes in ... ! There is some­thing about his voice. Then Earned It by The Weeknd be­cause we both earned it. And The Weeknd’s voice is just so smooth that it sends chills down my spine for that slow love­mak­ing night. J.L., fe­male, 29
